Or, y'know, your definition of "poor" is different than everybody else's.
So your definition of poor is based on whether or not your family receives food stamps? You get how circular that definition is, right?
So in your mind no poverty existed until the US created its food stamp programs? Interesting. I see an easy way to end poverty right now!
